Hero yes or no?

A hero is a man of courage who doesn't let anything bring him or his country state or city down.

Joshua Wong is a hero. People love Joshua because he has encouraged so much people to get up and fight for a better education.

When the police arrested him, they said he wasn't aloud to go into any big neighborhood. People got mad because this prevents him from playing a role in future demonstrations in the volatile, contested district.
